Having only just visited today, I thought I had to put a review on quickly as this is just the most AMAZING PLACE! The gardens are beautiful and well landscaped to allow for stunning vistas; the hydrangeas were in bloom and there seemed to be a carpet of them as far as I could see. Lovely walks and rare plants...

We are a family of 5 and actually visited a while ago when our children were 5, 7 and 9. We have just returned from another trip to Cornwall and it reminded me that I didn't review this place bit that it was really worth the visit at the time. Our kids really appreciated the garden, loved the play area... More

One of our party uses a wheelchair so we were delighted we managed to book the use of a 'tramper' from the gardens to get around the site. After a 20 minute training session and introduction to the gardens we were away. This made our visit, giving my boyfriend the freedom to explore the gardens along with our small dachshund... More

Cornwall has more than a dozen of beautiful gardens to offer. This one is well known e.g. for its large hortensias, for its tropical trees and for its cute beach where you can perfectly regain forces. Calculate 2-3 hoursfor an intense visit.

We visited with our coeliac son on the basis that the website says we "are recognised for offering choice to those requiring gluten free meals". We visited the cafe for coffee where the only option available to him was a chocolate brownie. It was very nice but he was hardly spoilt for choice. We were told gluten free rolls were... More

This was our first visit to Trebah. We had seen it on television and thought it looked good and we were not disappointed. It seems a lot of people from all over Europe had heard of it too, judging by the coachloads there. Before we started our trek around the gardens we had a cuppa at the cafe, sitting at... More

There is always something to see at Trebah in any season, There is also history associated with the gardens as this is where some American troops left for the D-Day invasion of France. The gardens end in a beach on the Helford River

The Gardens are stunning and Staff are fantastic, we took my wife's Grandfather and we were concerned if he would make it around.A member of staff (Derek) stopped us a suggested we ask for a Tramper (electric scooter).

We took our 2 and 5 year old, and they both loved it. There was something for all ages. A under 5 play area, a tarzan older play area, a nice little pebble beach, and of course the lovely gardens. It's also nice for an outdoor lunch.

My mum and I visited in the spring. Nice day out and worth a visit. We arrived and looked round the gardens. We also spent a little time on the private beach which was a lovely surprise. These garden are good for children too and can easily spend a few hours here. We visited the cafe too, good cream tea!
